Public Consultation on the Australian Dietary Guidelines

Closed on Wednesday, 29 February 2012, 05:00pm (AEDT). Submissions are no longer being accepted.

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has released the draft Australian Dietary Guidelines and Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for public consultation. You are invited under paragraph 13(d) of the National Health and Medical Research Act (1992) to make a submission to the NHMRC about the draft Guidelines. 

The Guidelines are based on the best available scientific evidence linking diet and health. They provide information for health professionals and the general population to reduce the risk of diet-related disease. The Dietary Guidelines encourage healthy dietary patterns to promote and maintain the nutrition-related health and wellbeing of the Australian population.
